Hi there! I'm an architect and artist living in beautiful Philadelphia. Since I love city life - being able to walk everywhere, having easy access to great restaurants and shops and friends right around the corner - I look for similar qualities in places I travel to.
I love visiting museums, making art and, well, shopping. My favorite thing to do when I travel, though, is stroll around the streets looking at buildings and popping into cafes. Being an architect, I'm really interested in observing the built environment wherever I go. When I first mover to Philly, I actually tripped frequently on the sidewalks because I was always looking up. I'll stop in a cafe several times throughout the day as well, both to compare coffee and pastries and take a rest after a long day of walking.
My favorite travel destinations include Japan, where I rung in the millenium, Rome, where I studied for a semester and London, a city I constantly return to. Everywhere I go I like to try different cuisines and have found that there is very little that I don't enjoy.
I look forward to meeting new people, whether at home or away, and have an easy time engaging with strangers in conversation. I've made some great, lasting friendships through engaging random people in the neighborhood, the cafe and even the gym.
I can't wait to travel to more far out destinations!
